[cheers and applause] >> larry: alright. thanks to my panelists, ricky velez, francesca ramsey, nina turner, and special thanks to qg and nipsey hustle. captioning sponsored by comedy central captioned by media access group at wgbh access.wgbh.org >> chris: it's 11:59 and 59 seconds. this happened on facebook! in the pantheon of baffling internet celebrities, fewer are more baffling than dr. pimple popper, a foxy dermatologist who posts hot 'n' nasty videos of bursting pimples, cysts and blackheads that are of interest to two groups: other dermatologists and really,
really specific masturbators. because once you go blackhead, you never go back-head. i'm sorry. i had to say that. [cheers and applause] guys who draw erotic video game fan art are like, "come on, man, you're into pus? >> chris: fine, i have to draw a wario giving it to a pregnant sonic the hedgehog." she's so popular that a local bakery sent over some appropriately-themed cupcakes! get ready. comedians, what would have rather watched than that video? paul? >> any claire dropping loads at the sperm bank. [laughing] >> chris: kneel. >> prehensive go pro footage of
the busiest hooker at the rnc. >> chris: points. hra *u[ applause ] >> chris: milana. >> rather watch a baby squirrel flung directly into on-coming traffic. >> chris: very honest. >> owe. chris: it's time to burst this pimple we call "@midnight." [cheers and applause] >> chris: welcome to @midnight. i'm chris hardwick. chris hardwick, what's up with your tie. i'm glad you asked. this is a chain mail tie. we're taping this show a couple of days in advance. this is smack dab we're in comic con now. young "@midnight" fan jen said she's sending a chain mail time. i said i'm wearing it during
comic con. thank you. to celebrate our holiest of holy days. tonight, we have the director and two co-stars of "ghostbusters" in theaters now. director and co-writer, it's paul feig. [cheers and applause] >> thank you. >> chris: he plays rowan, it's neil casey. [cheers and applause] >> chris: she plays subway rat woman, it's milana vayntrub. [cheers and applause] >> chris: let's start the program. ripped from today's internet headlines, it's "rapid refresh." here's a list of things we found in your search history. don't worry, we left out the one about you-know-what. first up, "an alternative to ghostbussing." earlier this month, lyft had a
ghost mode that allowed you to be picked up in an ecto-1 from normally, ghost mode is reserved for tinder after a [no audio] date, but not anymore. now you can ride in the kick-ass car from the movie while making awkward small talk with your driver about their acting career. comedians, you're all ghostbusting experts; what's something you might hear from a lyft driver in an ecto-1? nilana? >> who you going to call. get it like the movie. please don't le let it be uber. i need this lyft. [ applause ] >> chris: kneel casey. >> sometimes i feel like this car is haunted. i feel like everything is haunted after i smoke this much pot. >> chris: alright. points. paul fieg. >> thank you for ruining my childhood, asshole. [laughing] >> and to be clear they only say that to me. [ applause ] >> chris: points. [cheers and applause]
>> chris: next, "pranking dead." people are eagerly awaiting to find out who dies on the season premiere of "walking dead." i, for one, am hoping it's the host of "talking dead." but, the cast is keeping busy! case in point: female heartbreaker and zombie skullbreaker, norman reedus-- a.k.a. daryl dixon-- posted a video on instagram of him pulling what prank on andrew lincoln-- putting a. [no audio]-load of glitter in his car's air conditioner or shaving a dick and balls into his back hair? >> i'm going for dick and balls. [cheers and applause] >> great answer. >> the answer to the question is actually the first one. >> chris: okay. good. the correct question is in fact the first one. take a look. [laughing] >> how in did you [beep] put in here.
[laughing] [ applause ] >> chris: ya. you can't [beep] around with glitter that never goes -- that's clown herpeses. that's never going away. next up yum in the pink. for decades, nintendo's pink puffball, kirby, has been delighting fans by sucking enemies into his gaping mouth and absorbing their powers. well, now you can pop him in your mouth! relax, pervos, i'm not talking about a new v.r. [no audio] game; i'm talking about kirby food! they're coming to japan with food and drink based around the video i con. fun fact: kirby was named after john kirby, nintendo's lawyer back in the 1980s. and mario was named after mario seagle, who was the landlord of nintendo of america's corporate offices. clearly an italian stereotype. hey, i want to get to the wrench. it's me, mario.
i come back and fix your toilet. you keep it clogged. [laughing] >> chris: i'll be there noon. the gorilla kidnapped my girlfriend. [laughing] >> chris: alright. since nintendo has a history of naming fictional characters after actual people, what's another video game character that you think has a real world origin? milana. >> link from zelda. he's named after the emotional think i could never have with another human. >> chris: points. >> points. [ applause ] >> chris: neil. >> pikachu is named after a serial life killer, peek-at-you. he would electrocute drifters screaming his own name. >> chris: yes, points. paul. >> laura croft is named after a real life archaeologist with
backaching jugs. >> don't laugh it's a problem. [laughing] >> chris: that is the end of "rapid refresh. it's time for tonight's #hashtagwars. if you're alive, you'll know that comic-con is upon us, which comic-con is great because it's a place that nerds can just be nerds. so, we get our slave leias, hip-hop stormtroopers, and that weird cosplay that you can't figure out the origin for. that's why, as we celebrate nerd christmas, tonight's hashtag is. #comicconin5words. examples: "trying to [no audio] -- or after-party gets nasty. >> chris hardwick mod prates 300
panels. >> chris: yes. points. milana. >> what's a comic, reboot. [ applause ] >> chris: neil casey. >> hooked up with least famous ewok. >> chris: milana. >> woke up with chewbacca mom. chris: points. [laughing] >> oh, where is the [beep] comic books. >> chris: points. milana. >> smells bad, smells real bad. chris: points. [laughing] [cheers and applause] >> chris: it's hot. s-d isan diego is hot. milana. >> met incredible hulk from fresno. >> the greatest people in the world. >> chris: nice.

>> chris: alright. milana a thousand points. 500 to neil and paul. it's time for "the pop science of sex." dating apps are everywhere these days. there's tinder, grindr, clover, beefer, meatr, carrrrr, finger-rrrrrr, i hardly know-rrrr. and they're all competing with each other for the same hot and horny singles. to stand out, they'll periodically survey their users and publish the results as a juicy, headline-making study like this one: "iphone users have more sex an android user. which i can personally vouch for. or: "people who use emojis have more sex." and finally: "people who love grilled cheese sandwiches have way more sex than those who don't." [laughing] >> chris: can i ask you a question? do you think that's a survey of kraft singles?
[ applause ] don't know if this is exactly great science, but it sure is greasy. comedians, i want you to give me as many sensationalist dating studies as you can in 60 seconds. milana. >> people great at finding g spots great at finding -- spots.

>> chris: points. milana. >> shocking poll shows men that respect women are likely to be liked by women. >> chris: neil casey, you're in third place, we have to eliminate you. >> thank you for the opportunity. >> chris: thank you, neil casey. nice to see you. [cheers and applause] >> what a guy. >> chris: that means it's time to do it all for the wookiee-- it's "for the win!" [cheers and applause] "the force awakens" is back in the news. huffpo is reporting that j.j. abrams copped to a major error in the movie's trademark opening crawl. >> chris: i know you're upset right now. let's take a look at this humiliating gaffe. ah-ha! [beep] [beep] do you see it? does everyone see this glaring, indefensible error? there are supposed to be commas before and after luke! what the [beep]!
forget the pure joy i experienced watching a new "star wars" on the big screen; now this movie is worse than a travel mug full of jawa jizz! [laughing] j.j. abrams said, "i think its intention is pretty clear, and i take full responsibility for any punctuation errors." not good enough, j.j.! comedians, over the break, i want you to come up with your own "star wars" opening crawl that'll make fans even more upset. we'll have our comedians' answers and name the winner when we come back on @midnight. [cheers and applause] can i get you guys some beers? redd's apple ale! ♪ [ "stay" by lisa loeb ] redd's apple ale. also for a limited time in blueberry. [ song continues ]
